We stayed at the Palm Crest 5/21 - 5/25. We picked this hotel based on the reviews and were not disappointed. The room/grounds/pool were very clean. We used the grill several nights to cook our dinner. Nice feature. If you like the small mom/pop motels of the past then this is the place for you. If i ever have a... More

We stayed over the Memorial weekend. The location is direct on the beach and is a smaller motel w/ maybe 20 rooms.The price can't be beat -the value fair exceeds the price paid! The pool is oceanfront and Jack the owner is awesome! He accommodated our very late check in and was helpful in everything. We stayed in a garden... More

This is our third stay at Palm Crest. Last year we went somewhere else and while there I made reservations to come back to Palm Crest the following year! Its just so relaxing here. Palm Crest is on the southern end of St. Pete Beach, less people, a bit quieter, and so reasonably priced. We had a room with a... More

We have stayed here several times, and each time was as great as the last. Our room was comfortable, very clean, and kitchen was well equipped. Only thing missing was a blender, but we can live without one for a week! Cleaning ladies were top-notch, and anything extra you needed, you only had to ask. Many families come here year... More

After reviewing many hotels in the area, I picked Palm Crest Resort for my first time visit to St. Pete Beach. I made the right choice. The best "mom and pop" motel I have stayed at in Florida. The room was very clean and looks like it was updated within the last ten years. The bed was very comfortable. The... More

We were looking for a last minute 3 night hotel stay in Florida during Spring Break! A friend recommended this motel. It is a small motel directly on the beach with a pool overlooking the ocean. Is it brand new? NO! Did I see any bugs? NO! Was the room clean? Yes! Would I go back? Yes! The owner arrives... More

This motel is right on the beach with a pool facing the ocean. Our room was clean and the service was fantastic. It is no frills, but everything you need for a great time and at the right price. Location made its easy to walk on the beach to various places to eat and hang out. I highly recommend this... More

The Palm Crest exceeded our expectations in almost every way for our family spring break. The hotel rooms and grounds were very clean. The staff was accommodating and friendly. The laidback atmosphere, family-run feel, and affordable price were perfect for our family (kids age 13 and 11). The beach was great for walking and running. We didn't need or want... More

Stayed at this motel with family during spring break during the week. It's on a budget, don't expect all the fancy things from typical hotels. Expected room to be clean however we had to buy some cleaning items to be able to stay. Cigarette smell, old carpet, thick dust on ceiling fans made us stop by the dollar store to... More
